While Andy is all about throwing in an unexpected curveball, Stage brings clean, minimal style and simple straight lines to the bedroom. Much like Andy, Stage can also be used as both a versatile bedside table and a standalone unit that offers additional storage. You can combine as many as 6 individual drawers to create the unmistakable ‘tallboy’ or use a single-drawer unit as a nightstand for your low-slung platform bed.
Suspended furniture is always a viable solution. The functionality of mini-shelves hanging on the wall is undeniable, they can serve for books and for cosmetics, documents or other decorative objects. One last thing you should consider. The space under the bed shouldn’t be overlooked. There’s where you can “hide” boxes of all sorts and baskets with lots of things inside.
Adhesive decals can be used smartly in a painted foam-core board to make personalized designs at headboard. Batting inside the panel covered with cushions in the frame combines comfort and style. Add printed fabric to cover the plain metal head board to give a vibrant look. Abstract paintings, simple designs and curtains can also duplicate as the headrest of your bed. Upholstered headboards with whimsical designs can integrate aesthetics with comfort.
One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills), then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done, everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type, then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie.
The headboards we are talking about have a solid wood frame basket woven in flax and polyester. The back of the headboard is covered in muslin. This headboard is available in different sizes – Twin, with the dimensions of 40″w x 3″d x 62″h; Full that measures 56″w x 3″d x 62″h; Queen at 62″w x 62″h and King measuring 78″w x 3″d x 62″ h. Headboards with several other colors and fabrics are also available. Price varies from some 280 to around 400 Euro. Minimal assembly is required for this headboard. Delivery takes one to three weeks. We’re sold!
Much like the bibliophiles who needs plenty of space next to their bed (and then some more), there are many of us who simply cannot work with a tiny bedside table that offers limited surface space. The classic nightstand with a couple of drawers is still as cool as ever and many fabulous designs like the MEMO Night table from Baxter also bring along with them a dash of sculptural beauty. Be it the round nightstand, a mirrored beauty with plenty of glam, one that is draped in golden glitz or mismatched nightstands for the couple who have different needs – the bedside table you pick is determined as much by the style of the bedroom as it is by functionality.
